    It's not personal...they don't know any of you from Adam and Eve...they're just protecting their emotional selves. As they (or any other creator) should...Twitter is a cesspool filled to overflowing with entitled little shyts.

    now that would have been so cute and fierce. it would have been hard for me to criticize the issue had she been shown like that. i love me some Catwoman!!!!!

That makes sense but only if coates's work isn't ignored. Why would wakandans have a problem with their hadari yao borrowing a sacred sword that could possibly save their lives? Come on, most of them wouldn't.

    And, okay, another poster noted that no one would've even known the sword was gone unless ramonda, shuri, or t'challa told them. So true. None of this makes any sense beyond the contrivance of ending the relationship. That is not hard to discern. The logic of it all fails. But not if that motivation is factored in.

    that is the gag. the xwriters didn't have any interest in her, then coates picks her up and then they want to have all these big plans for her. its an absolute mess.

    Marauders #13 definitely reads like a story that had an objective, and worked backwards to get there.
    Stealing the sword was plan C, since plan A ( calling BP directly) and B (contacting the royal family) didn't work, so from a character point of view, I'm going to say Storm tried a few different tactics before resulting to theft. And I thought it was unfair for people to say Storm was being impatient since T'Challa ended up showing up at the end anyway, but it's not like the character knew that would happen.

    The rest of my criticisms have pretty much already been covered by others in this thread, so instead I'll say I really enjoyed the interactions with Storm and Shuri. I think some of the care and nuance that Vita took with the character interactions has been overshadowed by the rather dodgy plot stuff. I also like that Storm put her hair up before she went to work.

    I am most uncomfortable with Storm seeming to choose being mutant over everything, which is a choice that many of us with multiple marginalized identities feel like we are asked to do. And it kinda makes it seem like a character who is VERY important to a lot of Black people, doesn't consider her Black identity to be important...

    Still, I'm going to be generous and assume that this is the first part of a larger story with Storm and BP

    Block chains. Someone you might follow fits the requirements of the block chain and that is probably why.


    Just don't attack the creators under the thinly veiled guise of "constructive criticism".
    If one buys the book and states what they liked and did not like is NOT an attack on the creator.

    Butterflykyss and others are not gators who don't buy or even read the book yet go after creators for existing.

    These folks bought that book.

    Vita is FREE to not listen to any of them.

    Here is the THING.....

    Butterflykyss and the rest are also FREE to write reviews and to NEVER buy another book by Vita. That blocking folks will help enforce that.

    Kingdom X & Lordallmighty are right-how do you grow if you don't listen to criticism/feedback?

    All it takes is ONE bad book to SOUR folks on you.

    That is only an interpretation. One of many. And probably a spurious one at best given the stakes All Mutants have faced and are facing. It's not the whole truth of the matter, and her actions not taken in context of the whole narrative being told.
    A lot of these reactions are purely emotional and personal...understandably so but...one should also be able to look at the work from a removed and objective position.

    Unfortunately...twitter ensues.

    Folks get jealous when something you don't care for gets used by someone else who does a better job.

    It's a mark on the franchise she is from than the franchise she is being used in.

But given that they cannot very well retire to have children and keep starring on their comics, we get this sort of thing. I think it was pretty well written, and I would say her relationship with Wakanda is even stronger after the issue.

    But! This is not what I wanted to ask! In this issue N'Dare is drawn with white hair in her youth. I think that is a first. Do you think they are about to retcon something in Storm past? Maybe tying her dinasty to Apocalypse via Ashake/Genesis? Or maybe to the past of Wakanda?
    Well said.

    I am actually pleased at how impactful the issue was for readers. A lot of reaction in support and opposition to Storm's choices, but those are the stories I ten to like the most.

    and that was clearly shown. there is nothing here based in continuity and the biggest issue which was the sword was a retcon that didn't exist prior to this issue. that leads me to believe many other avenues and potential storylines could have been used. they could hsve even gone the route of the bone of swords, but this angle was chosen for a reason. and it wadnt just to show mytants will do what us necessary so I respectfully disagree there.
    Not only pro mutant, but pro-mutant first. That was clear when she reintroduced the Scott, Jean and the others. She is aligned enough to what happening on Krakoa and with the mutant race to put them first.

    As someone else pointed out this whole story X of Swords is reconned to have an another half of Krakoa. Adding a sword to Wakanda is a pretty small part of it.

    It's been said by the editors and writers that Storm is at the beginning of a story and that this books sets part of that up. We don't know that the story they are going to tell could be done using the sword of bone. Just because it's a part of her ancestral past doesn't mean it has any impact on her future.

    It's like if Gambit just blew everything up to steal something.

    But then again, Storm trying to solve everything with lightning first seems to have become the standard modus operati for many of her writers. Just like how Wolverine always needs to be heavily injured in every storyline.

    THIS . This was one of my gripe with issue.
    They alway say she's a Master thief, but always showcase her super sloppy.
    She hasn't done a heist worth the name. They don't even showcase her escape artis skills.
    I want to see some Carmen Sandeigo level work.
    I want her to break into Hydra, Steal from The Hand, Escape from the inescapable.
    Last time I was impress was when Magneto had her and they entire X-Men reduce to the skill level of infants and she got them out. No powers.

    IMO, its almost unfair to compare Coates to Vita. There's no nice way to say this, but Coates is a much, much better writer with a much more solid grasp of characters and storytelling. Vita's Marauders run has felt like a scattering of ideas and things that happen, and not even a solid plot. Coates has spent a lot of time going into the relationship between BP and Storm, even addressing some of the political and racial implications of Krakoa. Vita has Storm acting like a petulant child and taking advantage of her relationships with Wakandan royalty. It basically gives a giant middle finger to everything Coates has done.

    The story could have easily worked had it taken place near the end of the 3 day deadline. Its a simple fix that I'm stunned an editor didn't notice. It would have actually given Storm's decision weight. Instead her 'I can't wait for you' just makes her look stupid, because she's now going to be waiting in a circle for 2 days when she could have just waited an hour.

    She needed the storm to generate the energy to overload and disable the security system when she got to the storage facility.

    No she didnt. She can hurl lightning bolts from her hands. She didnt need to put the whole city on alert to do that. It was a very sloppy sneaking mission
